The festive season is here! Whether you love it or hate it, you won’t be able to escape it! December is filled with presents, parties, food, drink, and relaxing with family and friends. Christmas is a great time to feel stylish and dress up, and what better way to do this than with acrylic nails? Looking for some inspiration? Here are some tips and ideas to help you decide how to style your acrylic nails for the festive season.
Why choose acrylic nails?
If you want to wear artificial nails then using acrylic is one of the best options as it can make the artificial nail more sturdy and durable. Here at Elite School of Beauty Therapy we run acrylic nail courses in Hertfordshire. Having acrylic nails applied in a salon is the best option as doing it at home can tricky. For Christmas you want them to look as sleek and professional as possible.
What festive styles can I do with acrylic nails?
There are so many different designs that can be done on acrylic nails. With artificial nails there is plenty of space on them to implement some really creative and festive designs. Pinterest have some great visual ideas, below are my tips and ideas to get you thinking about what you might like:
Outfit Choice – Got a work Christmas party coming up which you specifically want great looking nails for? Think about what you’ll be wearing and what you want to go with the outfit. Do you want your nails to stand out and contrast with your style, or would you rather pick a colour to match your outfit?
How Many Nails– The next thing to think about is whether you want designs on all of your nails, or just a few. Having designs on all of them can look very creative and fun, but just one or two can be great for accentuating a certain part of your outfit.
Design Ideas – Do you want your nails to look creative and extravagant, or a bit more subtle? A design such a snowflake is subtle and festive. On the other hand, if you want something really special, why not opt for something snazzy like a snowman, christmas tree or reindeer?
Colours – If you don’t want something too OTT but still want to get into the festive spirit then it’s all about picking the right colours. Long gone are those summer colours of yellow and pink. The top festive colours are red, green, silver and gold. However, if none of these colours take your fancy then picking another colour and adding some glitter can definitely give you more of a festive look.
